Barley either by itself or in combination with other grains makes a surprisingly good mock Java, too. And at 0.20 to 0.254 per pound the price is certainly right.
Mrs. R. Van Ryzin of Stratford, Wisconsin recommends the following procedure: First, spread a thin layer of barley (husks and all) onto a cookie sheet . . . then place the sheet inside a 425° oven and bake the grain (stirring frequently) until it’s uniformly dark brown. Finally, grind the browned barley in an old coffee mill, food mill, or blender.
To make “Java”, just perk one heaping teaspoon of barley per cup of water. Says Mrs. Vans Ryzin: “You won’t believe the aroma. To me, it’s just like Great Grandma’s house used to smell is the early morn!” Mock java does not have to be an inferior product and mixes well with coffee to stretch the buck. Homemade flavored creamer and a cinnamon roll what could be better. Naturally decaffeinated and good for you.
